TWILIGHT OF THE MACHINES by John Zerzan - Green Anarchy / Anti Technology
TWILIGHT OF THE MACHINES: Green Anarchy/ Anti-technology
By John Zerzan
“The crisis deepens. Everyday life is plundered as much as the physical environment. Our predicament points us toward a solution. The voluntary abandonment of the industrial mode of existence is not self-renunciation, but a healing return.” — from Twilight of the Machines
The mentor of the green anarchist and neo-primitive movements is back with his first book in six years, confronting civilization, mass society, modernity and techno-culture — both the history of its developing crisis and the possibilities for its human and humane solutions.
As John Zerzan writes, “These dire times may yet reveal invigorating new vistas of thought and action. When everything is at stake, all must be confronted and superseded. At this moment, there is the distinct possibility of doing just that.”
John Zerzan can now credibly claim the honor of being America’s most famous anarchist. His writing is sharp, uncompromising, and tenacious.”—Derrick Jensen, Utne Reader
Previous works from John Zerzan include Elements of Refusal, Future Primitive, Against Civilization, Running on Emptiness, and Questioning Technology. He has also contributed to Apocalypse Culture, Telos, and Fifth Estate. An Oregonian with degrees from Stanford University and San Francisco State University, he is an editor for Green Anarchy magazine.
Today we have all the technology we want at our fingertips, yet it has never been harder to make ends meet !!
